If you need further convincing that nail art is having a serious moment, look to the couture claws of New York Fashion Week for proof! We’ve been spotting some seriously covetable nail designs on and off the runway, so we put together a list of our favorite fashion week manicures so far. “Obviously we know that nails are an easy accessory. It’s not a haircut, it’s not a commitment, it’s not like coloring your hair, and it’s fun” said celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, who created the nails for Kate Spade’s spring 2013 presentation. “You can totally change them, make them personal, and pair them with what you’re wearing on the weekend. It is a way to make yourself happy, for sure.” We agree! Click through our gallery to get a closer look at each of the manicures now.
